Beginning of the show: Georgia will play Clemson in 2024 in Atlanta according to an AJC report. I’ll talk on today’s show why that’s a good choice for the Bulldogs despite the fact some fans seemingly would prefer more home-and-home non-conference series with out-of-region opponents. I’ll also share audio of UGA coach Kirby Smart sharing his thoughts on how he and the Bulldogs can improve in 2018.

10-minute mark: I discuss a few lingering issues for UGA including wide receiver Terry Godwin’s health status, and the possibilities that two freshmen — Tyson Campbell and Otis Reese — could make an impact on UGA’s secondary Satruday. I also preview the weekend around DawgNation with the Kroger Checklist.
